About Us

Goetre Villa

Goetre Villa (in welsh: Woodland Dwelling) was founded in 2016 as an environmental consultancy providing project management services and technical expertise in both the water industry and in arboriculture. Projects within arboriculture began in 2017 and we have undertaken several tree planting projects with community and schools groups across Wales and England. Goetre Villa began selling TreePans as an aid to tree establishment and details are available on www.woodlanddwelling.co.uk. In 2018 we became the UK distributor for TreePlotter. Theri Reichlin joined our team in 2019 to work with Russell Horsey help grow the business in all areas. Project management of all projects is undertaken by Claire Horsey.
